Greetings from your local shopping assistant. That's right, I've been popping in a few places downtown and gathering up a list of some of my favorite things. I'm no Oprah but I can have a list too. Here's a start. Get your credit cards warmed up because time is running out.
First stop, you need to grab a "Santa's Little Helper Latte" at Lizzy Kate. Delish. You can't be a Seattlite if you don't have a warm cup in your hand to help you shop.

The Heathman Hotel- surprise her with a gift card for a stay-cation in one of the recently renovated guest rooms. New carpet, drapes, furnishings, mini fridges, built in task-lights and enhanced work area in each room. Each floor's art celebrates a different NW theme: water, land, mountains and sky. Rates from $199+
Lady Yum "Eat Drink & Be Merry" Holiday pack $20. So pretty and yummy. They last 2-3 days in the fridge. Be sure to include the eggnog toffee crunch and especially the peppermint macaroon. Because it's dipped in chocolate and chocolate calories don't count during the month of December. Great hostess gift!
Asher Goods- check out these pressurized growlers that keep beer, coffee or mixed drinks fresh for 2-2 1/2 weeks. $149-169. Why would you ever leave the house? Perfect for the guy who already has 'everything.' You'll find Yeti products at Asher too because dreams CAN come true.
wow I can hardly seem them
Essentials on Park Lane- ladies, you know what I'm talking about. When it's game day and you accidentally brought you big purse and now you're in big trouble. Get yourself a clear game-day bag so there's not mistaking what you've got with you. Hopefully nothing embarrassing! $27-50.
